Queen of the Harpies
Those are all beautiful songs. I'm glad you were able to be there for her as a friend for all of these years. Thank you for ensuring our cards and messages got to her, and for publishing Dick's book so we could get a glimpse into the person that he was in his final years.
I was thinking about how the first time she contacted me was about a vintage article we had posted and how it was supposedly an interview conducted with her at their home. It was just a little fluff piece about Dick's family with a couple of Bewitched quips thrown in--nothing scandalous, but she wrote to me about the "yellow journalism" back in those days and how she never said any of the quotes or had that reporter to their house. They just threw a few stock photos in a piece that was manufactured and published it. So, I took the article down. It was one of my first lessons in how those vintage articles could not be trusted, and I understood why some of the actors refused to work with certain publications later in life.
That's why the Filmfax article, the Entertainment Tonight interviews, and the book The Seesaw Girl and Me are so important in capturing who they really were in their own words. May they both rest in peace now.
